FDOT Truck Bypass Construction Project Begins

Road work notice image

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is scheduled to begin a truck bypass construction project the week of March 2, 2020. The project limits extend from west of SR 997/Krome Avenue to east of SR 5/US 1 along SW 312 Street/Campbell Drive, SW 336 Street/Davis Parkway and SR 9336/Palm Drive in the cities of Homestead and Florida City. The purpose of the project is to provide a truck bypass facility and redirect truck traffic from Krome Avenue to US 1, which will remove truck traffic from the Homestead Historic Downtown District.

The project will cost an estimated $16.3 million and will take about 14 months to complete. The proposed work includes roadway widening and rebuilding; performing drainage work; installing a new sanitary sewer lift station; and, upgrading lighting, signalization, signage and pavement markings on the three roadways and a section of US 1.

To build this project safely, it will be necessary to temporarily close travel lanes at times. Construction will be done in stages to minimize impacts to the public during special events and peak periods of traffic. The department will make sure traffic continues to flow safely through the work zones.

Please note that this schedule may change due to bad weather or other unexpected conditions. For more information, please call FDOT’s Public Information Office at (305) 470-5349 or Construction Community Outreach Specialist Heather M. Leslie at (305) 905-5876 or go to the website at www.fdotmiamidade.com.
